It's Princess Eugenie's birthday on 23 March and we imagine she has a fun day lined up with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their two sons, August, three, and Ernest, nine months.

The royal couple married in October 2018 in a beautiful wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, and they welcomed their first child August in 2021, followed by their second son Ernest in 2023.

The family split their time between Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace and their sunny residence in Portugal.

Eugenie, 34, often shares photos of her children on her Instagram page, which is unusual for a member of the royal family - a testament to Sarah Ferguson's daughter's down-to-earth nature.

Cerebrating the late Queen

Back in June 2002, little August enjoyed watching the RAF fly-past at Buckingham Palace which paid tribute to his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

Eugenie wrote: "The most perfect day to celebrate 70 years."

"Within The Tea Timers herd is a wonderful baby elephant called Assam August - and it was such a pleasure to take my August to meet him."
